    onlyme got a reaction from mattydread in What DIY have you done?   
    Been home nearly all of last three weeks.
    Tiling end wall and alcove with split stone tiling.
    Final fit of woodburning stove and hearth - made a mistake with hearth size but edged it with contrasting marble and  if anything looks better as a result.
    Daubing out a wall ready for finish plastering.
    Pointing stonework, loads more of that to do.
    Loads of electrics, chasing in and fitting to do. 
    Have 8 meters of pallert racking to put int garage to help with storage and lift/replace the roof - well that is the plan.
    Bug better not get me as will leave one hell of a mess for wife to sort out.

    They are doing very well,  western response to mask supply and advice is scandalous, such a simple and effective additional barrier to spread.

    I wonder about viral load now - one of the new phrases with which we are all becoming familiar with.
    If people used tissues generally I suspect that there would still be enough viral infections going on to help build the immune response in people. But with so many now just opening their mouths and coughing they are, each time, expelling vast amounts of viruses into the air. The more of a virus gets into you then the harder it is for your body to provide a fight against it. I posted a Chris Marterson video a few days ago where he outlined this.
    I was thinking about the D3 yesterday. Someone in the media mentioned getting out in the sunshine to build up their D levels. I knew immediately that it was too soon for D creation here in the UK. But I popped outside at midday to have a check - if your shadow is longer than you are tall then NO D3 creation takes place. We are probably a good fortnight, if not 4 weeks, too early.
    Ah, here is the Materson video. About 10 - 12 minutes but it makes sense about viral load.
     
    We have the worse of both worlds in the UK - no masks and people not bothering to cover their mouths.

    I would think that any company that manufactures air and pollen filters for cars would be quite capable of making masks instead. Vacuum cleaner bag manufacturers should be able to as well.

    The stats can certainly be off as a result but the point stands that, of current patients, a good number are not old farts.

    Im sceptical about these stories ,if any demographic is going to ignore the lock downs it`s going to be the young especially so after they were being told it does not really effect them when all this started

    Even better - a few weeks ago people in the West were organising shipments of masks to China to help out. Lots of info coming out of China that the masks were intercepted by the CCP for use by themselves/police/army.
    You cannot make this up.

    That test cannot determine if you have had it,it`s and antigen test you have or you don`t have it then add to that the asymptomatic  cases that will never have seen a test ,,,we just don`t know  
    Look at Germany close to 1 millon tests 72K positives 325 deaths 
    The medical officer also said in that briefing the NHS has been planning for this since January he`s either lying or the NHS is incompetent if they are still short of PPE ,,,,with the caveat maybe half the world has been chasing the same supplies from the same manufactures since January 
    Also when asked about the 3 million antibody tests ,,,he said jack shit did not even acknowledge the question

    A tight social circle bound by New York City basketball is hit hard by Covid-19, with two dead and others ailing.

    The Russians are pariah's mainly because of The Democrat Party.The EU and the Labour Party,those groups have made it impossible for any leader to have a meaningful relationship with Putin for fear of being dubbed a Russian asset.

    Indeed. In fact I think that Russia considers itself as THE only remaining custodian of European values and ideals! Arrogant maybe, but its one of the reasons I think Russia and the West will come back together politically.
    btw Yeltsin was a disaster for the Russian people and corruption spread under his presidency. Not sure how hard the West tried to engage with Russia during that period, perhaps the chaos of the time prevented this. But the US (Empire?... not being critical of the US; there is always a 'top-dog empire') in particular assumed rather arrogantly that the prevailing global-liberal economic agenda would simply take hold in Russia. The US is pretty useless when it comes to 'nation building' as we have come to see time and again since then.

    When we have a situation like Spain or Italy I think the political landscape will be very different,people have had enough of globalization,transgender issues,feminism and diversity etc.
    The UK is a powder keg and people are sick and tired of having to moderate their language in their own Country and realise it is impossible to please the minority groups as they keep coming out with more outlandish demands.

    This corresponds perfectly with what we have heard here from the 3 people we know who’ve had it. Nobody has died that we know yet, but they all thought they might at one point. Two of them are young, in their 20s, one was briefly hospitalized.  Don’t think this disease is a picnic, unless you’re one of the lucky ones.

    I think that royalty, mps and celebrities being tested whereas ordinary people being fobbed off is going to foment a lot of anger in the population
    It feels like the authorities are deliberately keeping the population in the dark

    I reckon it goes the other way. Historically low number of properties coming to market for the past few years hasn't dampened prices, sadly. So forcing the market to close i.e. effectively bringing sales to zero, is the only way to protect it (in their eyes).

    My BIL went into hospital with double pneumonia last week after 10 days proper ill. He tested negative, assuming the blood test was taken the day he went in too. There's no doubt in my mind he had it, so it seems without antibody tests they're fairly useless and by the time you have pneumonia the body has killed the virus off and a cykotine storm has allowed bacteria into the lungs? He recovered pretty quickly on antibiotics.

    Downing Street briefing announced at beginning that of 120,776 tests done in Uk 17,089 were positive. I think the fact that these were done by targetting those symptomatic and low positive rate of 14% indicates it is unlikely that a large proportion of the poplation may havebeen benignly infected increasing the herd immunity. only hope is that the tests have been adinistered too late to show postive for antibodies as patients have recovered to extent they are no longer detectable. seems unlikely though.
